When your career is just getting started, you might have a vision of where you'd like to be in five or 10 years, but how do you get there? Usually, there won't be one big, magical opportunity that lands in your lap. Instead, you'll find success through a series of small, incremental decisions and actions that set your career in motion.
The main goal is to set yourself apart from the crowd. It may seem obvious, but it's not easy to do. Maybe you're a "big-picture person" who's able to help your company create a profitable new strategy. Maybe you love the small details and help prevent costly errors. You already possess skills that your company values, so how can those skills help you reach career goals?
